The Vetlab SP21 LED Microscope

Fish Disease Identification Microscope

In microscopy terms the microscopic identification of fish parasites is not an exacting requirement. It is of course possible to spend much more on a microscope. However, if your objective is to have a microscope that you will only use from time to time to keep your fish clean and free from parasites, then you need spend no more than the purchase price of our Vetlab SP21 fish disease identification microscope.

Technical specification

Firstly, the SP21 has many features that are normally found on microscopes of a much higher price. The optical parts are made from achromatic corrected glass and are standard Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) size. Further more, the monocular head rotates through 360° and lastly, it has a widefield x10 good quality eyepiece plus, an additional widefield x20 eyepiece.

Achromatic RMS Standard Objectives

The rotating turret is equipped with x4, x10, and x40 achromatic RMS objectives, which when used with the x10 and x20 eyepieces gives a magnification range of x40 to x800. This is ideal for fish parasites that commonly need magnifications of x10 and x400. The x40 objective has a spring loaded front lens element that retracts the lens into the objective on contact with the slide. In addition, the stage has a safety stop with a similar purpose.

Mechanical Stage With Drop Down Coaxial Controls

The slide platform is a full mechanical stage. This platform has drop down coaxial controls that makes fine movement of the stage in the required direction very easy. Above all, the double vernier scale also allows position identification on the slide.

Simple To Use With Illustrated Instructions Included

The focus system is also coaxial with the coarse and fine focus being ideally placed in a low position towards the back of the microscope body. The focus control moves the stage up and down to achieve focus. Beneath the stage is a fully focusable substage condenser with iris diaphragm. This is used to focus the illuminating light in the plane of the specimen, with the iris helping to provide clarity of specimen detail. It may sound complicated, but it is very simple to use in practice and fully illustrated instructions are included.

LED Illumination

The SP21 base has built-in LED illumination with rheostat control that allows the intensity of the lighting to be adjusted to suit the magnification in use.

Microstat Heated Stage

Microscope Heated Stage – Fits most makes of Microscopes

The Microstat microscope warming stage ensures the accurate temperature controlled microscopy that is critical to meaningful sperm motility assessment and other live cell examinations.

Conveniently attaching to the mechanical stage of almost any veterinary microscope, Microstat digital monitoring and adjustable temperature control maintains semen and other living cell samples thermally independent of variable field or laboratory conditions.

Live Specimen and Semen Quality Microscopy

Simple and straightforward addition of a Microstat heated stage adapts almost any veterinary laboratory microscope for semen quality assessments and other live specimen applications. Sperm motility microscopy requires the maintenance of live sperm at 37 °C (98° F), the temperature normally experienced during fertilisation in vivo. Semen quality assessments in the field can be impaired by environmental temperatures too high or too low for meaningful sperm motility observations.
